Abstract

We describe two-beam coupling and temporal encoding experiments in barium titanate. Volume gratings are created in the photorefractive material by 50-fs optical pulses. Information in the writing pulses may be encoded as spatially distributed volume gratings in the crystal. Femtosecond temporal waveform reconstruction is demonstrated.

Output of a CPM laser is prechirped by a grating pair and subsequently divided in two beams of variable relative delay. A boxcar averager, chopper, and autocorrelator (AC) are used to measure the duration of the pulses after the BaTiO3 crystal.

Fig. 2

Longitudinal length of the pulse lp = ctp determines the effective interaction region—defined by Y = lp/sin θ—in the limit of large beam diameter (ω0/cos θY). In the small-beam-diameter limit (ω0/cos θY), the effective interaction region is determined by the intersection of the incident beams.
